"I started to paint BANG BANG for a group show Vexed: Tits, Tatts & Turmoil, hence the elements in the painting. Originally the Japanese text in the background read "vexed", but due to lack of time, I was not able to finish the painting in time for the show and decided to change it to "BANG BANG" which I felt fit the mood of the piece better. Each element in the painting represents some of the things, situations, and emotions that directly and indirectly affect us in our daily lives." - Mimi Yoon
ABOUT THE ARTIST:
For artist Mimi Yoon
, there is no concrete definition for art. To her it is simply that "art is." Mimi's artwork vibrates with tangible and sensual beauty and honesty. It subtly allures then climaxes to demand attention and is immediately unforgettable.
Mimi works intuitively without speculating what each piece will be about. She paints with acrylic, but her main medium is her own feelings and mood of the moment. Through her art she explores the landscape of dreams and emotions not understood, and invites the viewers to drift off on emotional journeys into a world of dreaming. Mimi’s art is explosive and sensually mysterious at once and it settles upon the eyes and souls of the viewers like a fine tuned symphony of a foggy night.
